How to copy an Amazon Redshift cluster to a different AWS account

by | Aug 8, 2021

Are you looking for how to copy an Amazon Redshift cluster to a different AWS account? We can help you!

Here, at Bobcares, we often handle similar requests from our AWS customers as a part of our AWS Support Services.

Today, let’s see how our Support Engineers help our customers to copy an Amazon Redshift cluster to a different AWS account.

 

Copy an Amazon Redshift cluster from one AWS account to another

 
Now, let’s discuss the steps for copy an Amazon Redshift cluster from one account to another.

  1. At first, we should create a manual snapshot of the cluster that we want to migrate.
  2. Then, sharing that cluster snapshot with another AWS account.
  3. Finally, we should restore the cluster snapshot at the destination AWS account.

 

Creating a manual snapshot

 
We must create a manual snapshot of the cluster as follows:

  1. Firstly, log into the AWS Management Console and then open the Amazon Redshift console.
  2. Select CLUSTERS, Snapshots, then select Create snapshot.
  3. Then enter the properties of the snapshot definition, then click Create snapshot.

Note that it might take some time for the snapshot to be available.
 

Sharing the cluster snapshot

 
After creating the snapshot, we have to share the cluster snapshot with another AWS account.

  1. Log in to the AWS Management Console and then open the Amazon Redshift console.
  2. Select CLUSTERS, Snapshots, then select the snapshot to share.
  3.  Then for Actions, select Manual snapshot settings to show the properties of the manual snapshot.
  4. After that, within the Manage access section, enter the accounts to share.
  5. Then select Save.

 

Restoring the cluster snapshot

 
After sharing the snapshot, we should restore the cluster snapshot at the destination AWS account.

  1. Log in to the AWS Management Console and then open the Amazon Redshift console.
  2. Select CLUSTERS, Snapshots, and then select the snapshot to restore.
  3. Select Restore from snapshot to see the Cluster details and Cluster configuration of the new cluster to be created from the snapshot information.
  4. Then update the properties of the new cluster and then select Restore cluster from  snapshot.

Also, note that our cluster must meet the following requirements:

  • Always note that the new cluster will have a different DNS endpoint. So we need to update the users that the endpoint is going to change.
  • Amazon S3 log settings are not migrated. We must enable database audit logging on the new cluster.
  • The STL and SVL tables are not retained in the new cluster.
